Spring is for Service

I've been participating in a few service projects this spring.

The first was in February.  I was on a committee to help prepare these kits for Little Dresses for Africa.  I made 200 yards of bias tape and made 10 of the 350 dresses. 

Next, getting these two quilts ready for a quilt tying party with the young women.  The plaids quilt is made from 9"x13" rectangles and the 3" sashing required 3 yards of fabric to end up with a full size quilt.  I saw this quilt in a book from the library called Quick Quilts to Make in a Weekend.  The greens quilt is just 221 squares 6" large and also made a full sized quilt.

The last project is making 50 doll kits for this humanitarian doll, which mostly involved baking doll hair.  Just wrap knitting needles with yarn and bake for 10 minutes at 200 degrees.
